If the bake element doesn't heat and the broil element does, only the element itself or the control board can be bad. You already replaced the element so unfortunately that means that the relay for the bake element on the display board has failed. Sometimes this fails on it's own, or sometimes if the old element shorts out it will take out the relay with it. Either way, the display board will need to be replaced to fix this issue since you can't just replace the bake relay on the display board separately.
